Adele wins Album,Record & Song of the Year at Grammys 2017, Dedicates Awards to George Michael and Beyonce

Adele OWNED the Grammy Awards 2017, she won every award she was nominated for, an incredible achievement only three other artists have done before…Beyoncé (2004),Amy Winehouse (2008) and Alison Krauss (2009).

Adele had just won the Song of the Year 2017 for “Hello”, dedicating it to the late George Michael and as she was walking off the stage with her Song of the Year award, the nominees for the Best Album of the Year were shown on the big screen.

She couldn’t believe the words, the female announcer spoke over the mic..after much hesitation and a weird “ummm…umm” she said 25, the audience were stunned..not many were clapping and Adele herself was taken aback by the announcement that she couldn’t hold back her tears of joy.

But what she would say on the stage after receiving the award, would eventually stun the most fanatic of her supporters.In her tearful acceptance speech..Adele dedicated the award to Beyonce calling her “artist of my life, my album of the year Lemondae”… and confessed that she herself was a big fan of Beyonce and was a touch disappointedthat Beyonce did not win the award for Lemonade.

Sympathizing with Beyonce, Adele further added “Five years ago at the Grammys, I was pregnant and didn’t know …and that was the biggest blessing of my life, and in my pregnancy and through becoming a mother, I lost a lot of myself. I still do struggle but tonight winning this kind of feels full circle and like a bit of me has come full circle.”

Looking Beyonce deep in the eyes Adele said, “You are our light and the way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel, is empowering and you make them stand up for themselves. I love you and I always will.” In her response Beyonce uttered looking at Adele…”I Love You”.

Later backstage when most of the journalists were packing up, Adele stopped by some of the journalists and said…”America has always been very kind to me, I don’t know why… I didn’t think anyone would care. I thought no one would know it was me. I thought it was going to be a very expensive disaster.”

Adele then talked about her son Angelo James Konecki born on the 19th of October 2012 and how much her boy inspired her, brought the best out of the singer.She once again shifted her focus to Beyonce..adding these words “Like I said in my speech, my album of the year (was) Lemonade. I was completely rooting for her, voting for her.”

One has to remeber that Beyonce has been a great source of inspiration for Adele, as spoken by the British singer herself in countless interviews, on how much she had adored Beyonce since her pre-teen years.

“It was her time to win. It was like, what the (f**k) has she got to do to win album of the year?!”.Even though Grammy voters are very traditional, “I thought this was the year that they would go with the tide. Of course, I am very grateful having won. But I felt the need to tell her, because I love her. And she was more than worthy.”

Adele’s winning the Album of the Year at Grammys 2017 for 25, makes her the only singer apart from Taylor Swift, in the history of the Grammy awards to have won the coveted Album of the Year twice.

It might have been a disappointing night for Beyonce..but it was truly a forgettable night for Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande..from whom much was expected from their fans but neither of them managed to win any awards in their chosen categories.
